One Dress, Three Ways: Work Wear

Forever 21 dress, Corey Lynn Calter skirt, Abercrombie & Fitch cardigan, Michael Kors watch, Mom's anchor pin, Anthropologie handbag

My second look for "One Dress, Three Ways" is for a day at the office. I dress for comfort to work (who am I kidding I always strive for comfort). I tucked the dress into my favorite skirt by Cory Lynn Calter and threw on some opaque tights from Forever 21 and comfy flats. I wanted to add some character to my otherwise simple cardigan by adding this gold anchor pin that my mom gave me. I love huge bags for work. I throw in my laptop and lunch and even a magazine. This bag is perfect for that and is a beautiful burgundy color.
Stay tuned for tomorrow when I wear the dress for a night on the town!

Great rendition of the dress! I love the idea of using a dress as a top with a skirt. It makes dresses more versatile.

I love this day look for work! It's simple yet chic and I love how you wore a skirt over top of the featured dress to give it a completely different look. I never would have guessed that it was a dress under there! And the cardigan with the anchor pin is so cute. Love it! and I like the 1 dress, 3 ways idea.

Sher said...

Oh I love how you matched it with the skirt and white cardi! Also the anchor pin is pure perfection, adore it, you look gorgeous:)

im also doing a post on the versatility of dresses ! i cant imagine if there werent things such as dresses . they are really the only apparel piece that as long as it fits you well, it can make you look chic even if you dont have any accesories on .

Ooh, love the styling here. It's very Blair Waldorf. Especially smitten with the addition of the oversized watch - it adds a touch of androgyny to your entire look. You are amazing, Taylor! :)
